Paper Plate Angel Wings

Warning:  This craft just might blow your mind.

As you know, my kids have been helping Santa out this Christmas by caring for some of the people on his Good List.  Well, the big Man himself let me in on a little secret.

And he has given me permission to tell you about it...but sshhh, you must keep this hush, hush.  On Christmas Eve, Santa will be checking back in on my kids and the other children who take up the call to be Santa's little helpers...and this is what they will receive...their own set of angel wings to wear on Christmas!

Here are our three sets of wings.  Like, I said, Santa gave me special permission to show this to you, but not to my kids.

Do you know some special children who have earned their wings this year???

Then you MUST make these super easy and beautiful paper plate angel wings.

The woman who came up with this idea did it in a crunch.  That's true Mommy ingenuity!

Here's how they are made:

You will need:

10 paper plates
low-temp glue gun

First cut your wings like this.

Second, arrange eight on each side of a paper plate in wing-form and glue.

Third, glue another paper plate on top of the first plate to make it pretty and add ribbon straps.

You're done!  EASY, RIGHT?

This craft goes with our annual reading of The Littlest Angel.
